A-cup playdowns for 2016

February 5, 2016

This weekend (Feb 6/7) is the last weekend of regular league play for the 2015-16 VIPL season (already!)  Feb 13/14 is a make-up weekend, and then we are on to VIPL A-cup playdowns!

Completed playdown brackets for all divisions will be posted here, starting February 10.   Playdown brackets are seeded based on league standings, so all league and makeup games in your division must be complete in order for us to determine your playdown schedule.

For more detailed information on cup play, check out the A-cup page.


 

Special Notice: weather makeups for U14G, U16G and U18G

For some teams in the U14G, U16G and U18G divisions, all makeup dates have been used, including February 8th.  Please be aware that this means if any further games are missed involving these teams, a double header will be required to complete the final round which is needed for seeding playdowns.

Please make your parents aware and hope for good weather!

 


 

VIPL Severe Weather Protocol 2015-2016

Games may be cancelled due to severe weather ON GAME DAY: unsafe driving conditions, road closures, field closures, and ferry closures.Unfortunately, cold, wet and windy conditions are considered just a part of fall/winter soccer!

In this order:

1. Coaches in the affected communities are to call their Opponent's Coaches.  

2. Both team's coaches are to notify their respective players/parents. 

3. Both team's coaches are to notify their Club designate and, if you are the HOME team, ensure that all internal calls are made to notify the: Club Administrator, Club Referee Scheduler and Club Field Scheduler. Please follow your club's internal protocol.

4. Teams, club Administrator or designate to email cancellation notification to UISA Administrator @ upperislandsocceroffice@gmail.com

5. UISA Administrator to email those affected with further cancellation/rescheduling information, and update VIPL website.

Please note: 

- If snow is in the forecast, it might be a good idea to touch base with your opponent’s coach the night before, so you can ensure you have a "game plan" on game day!

- Coaches contact info is also on the VIPL website on the left hand menu, click on "Standings".  Filter to desired division and then click on desired team.  The coaches contact information will pop-up.

- It is good practice for all teams to become familiar with their opposing teams websites to check for field closures.

          - On the UISA website: www.uisoccer.org on the left hand menu, click on "Links".  Links to all Club websites are located here.           All UISA Clubs have their field status on their home page.

 - On the LISA website: www.lowerislandsoccer.com on the left hand menu, click on "Members".  Links to all Club websites are located here. All LISA Clubs have links to their field status on their home page.

- Also check the VIPL website: www.leaguelineup.com/VIPL for the status of your games. Once I receive notice of field closures or cancellations, I will post it on the website and notify the affected teams.
